Nearly 500,000 people living across the 13 counties that make up the Tarrant Area face hunger. Stagnant wages and skyrocketing prices for food, shelter, gas, and utilities continue to make it harder for families who are facing hunger to access enough to eat. Rising costs have also impacted food banks’ ability to provide and distribute food to meet the high rates of need. Food banks like TAFB are now facing a reduction in donated foods due to reduced covid-related government emergency food assistance to food banks and a 24% reduction in commercial food donations because of supply chain shortages.
Despite these challenges, the support of hunger heroes like you have made it possible for our food bank to make historic and unprecedented investments – purchasing over $1 million of additional food each month to provide emergency food assistance for families facing hunger. There is still more work that we must do together to ensure no one living across our 13-county service area goes hungry!
That is why the Tarrant Area Food Bank is looking for more Hunger Heroes like you who are willing and ready to make an impact on hunger. No cape? No problem! There are so many ways our Hunger Heroes can get involved. Whether you Donate, Volunteer or Advocate, you can make a difference with TAFB across our 13-county service area.
Together, we can build a food secure community. Be a hunger hero today by using one of these superpowers today!
